Make sure to check out this excellent video interview with Elmore Leonard and his tips on writing up at "Dead End Follies". As stated in the post, the video quality isn't the best but the vid is worth the watch. Also, it's kind of fun to take note of Leonard's writing space. I always felt like a bit of a nerd for decorating my space like that too until now. Unless it was all just a set. In which case I guess I am a nerd.
